The Vienna Philharmonic Silver coin is the best-selling silver bullion in Europe. It was introduced in 2008 by the Austrian Mint. It symbolizes the unique European classical music’s history.
The mint was originally founded in 1194 and initially funded with 15 tons of silver paid by Kind Richard I of England, and operates from its facility in Vienna until present.
The Vienna Philharmonic Silver coin saw a huge spike in demand during and after the 2008 financial crisis. Many believe that precious metals are the hedge against the devaluating fiat currencies.
Silver has always been considered honest money and will generally outperform gold during a bull market. Investors know that if they need to sell, these coins will command higher prices and there will be plenty of demand.
The 1oz Silver Austrian Philharmonic Coin was first released in 2008 and has since gone on to be one of the most popular silver coins in Europe, offering strong competition to the silver Britannia coins and even beyond, with surprising popularity in the United States and Japan.
The Vienna Philharmonic Silver coin was designed by the Austrian Mint’s head engraver, Thomas Pesendorfer.
The coin's obverse features the Great Organ of the Musikverein, also known as the Golden Concert Hall in Vienna, Austria; the engraved name of the state "REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH"; the coin denomination value of “1.50 Euro”, fully backed by the Austrian government and the coin mintage year “2021”.
On the reverse of each coin, you may see eight orchestral instruments – four violins, cello, bassoon, harp, and Viennese horn.
